Re: Air Canada "haute cuisine" and incidence of Crew diarrhea?

Dude, over the last 6 years I have eaten a lot of AC crew meals. Have never felt the least bit sick. Might not be my favourite food but I have no more worry about it making me sick than eating at any airport restaurant.

I think you may be trolling.

Re: P-3 or CP-140?

Dude, really, it matters? I never used "CF18 or CF188" always just said F18. Pretty sure the Aurora guys would do the same and just use P3, it was what I heard on the radio most of my career when flying around Comox. Some guys might say Aurora, some CP140, and some P3. Really, who the f*** cares.

Pelmet, I am neither a Rockie advocate or detractor, but in all fairness, where did Rockie say Chris was arrogant. I read through twice and don't see him saying that. I have missed things before so maybe I am just too tired after a red eye last night, but I don't believe Rockie said that at all.

Re: When is AC hiring again?

There is an internal reference program.

Not a DC pension to start with. What someone was referring to was the pension payout is higher than the DC because the employee/employer pay into it more since there is no ITA limits.
